Mulu Caves 2012 Expedition to Gunung Mulu National Park
During the month-long expedition, which based itself at the National Park headquarters, members carried out a programme of exploration and research including studies on bell-hole formation, sedimentology and dating.
Just under 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) of passage was surveyed, in extensions to Lagan’s Cave and in the cluster of Red Leaf Monkey Caves 1 & 2 and Train Cave, located about 600 meter (2000 feet) above the entrance to Cobra Cave in the Melinau Paku Valley.
A team collecting samples in the Clearwater system also found another 700 meters (2300 feet) of new cave, but unfortunately, were not carrying survey equipment.
